Keith discusses full state secession for Florida with fellow Floridian Mike Collins. Mike is Chair of the Polk County Libertarian Party, and an admin of the FLexit Facebook group. Should FL divorce Washington DC? What are some of the issues to resolve, and how might they be handled? Is Florida big enough/rich enough/strong enough to be independent? Is peacefully leaving the union legal and constitutional? Will national divorce start a war? We answer these questions, with backup data on an independent Florida. In a wide-ranging discussion we review several common arguments against secession of a U.S. state, explain why they are wrong, and review the principle foundations behind a national divorce.
